    Second homes cannot have the discount reduced if they are a caravan. There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether a caravan must have wheels or not.

    Can anyone help? 😕

    For Council Tax purposes the definition of a caravan is contained within Part 1 of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 which states:

    “caravan” means any structure designed or adapted for human habitation which is capable of being moved from one place to another (whether being towed, or by being transported on a motor vehicle or trailer) and any motor vehicle so designed or adapted, but does not include-

    (a) any railway rolling stock which is for the time being on rails forming part of a railway system, or
    (b) any tent

    CARTER & ANOR. v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT & ANOR.(1994) also confirms that it must be capable of being moved in a single piece.

    Hope this is useful
